Black Hills Estate Winery Rose 2018 B.C.

I’ve been chomping at the bit waiting for this beautiful wine to be released since tasting it at a Black Hills event last year. Expectations are high for the winery that gave us Nota Bene and they’ve delivered big time. What stood out for me was the complexity. Master of Wine Ross Wise used three grapes for his rose. Pinot Noir 42%, Gamay 35% and Malbec 23%. A beautiful copper pink in the glass I picked up aromas of strawberry and watermelon. Strawberry dominates on tasting with a hint of rhubarb. This is a wonderfully complex rose with a long finish. I love the acidity and feel confident in saying Black Hills rose will pair with your favorite summer dish. The price is also lower than previous vintages which only adds to this being my best buy pick of rose season. Enjoy!
